The seven castaways have been trapped on Killigan's tropical desert island since the U.S.S. Minnie crash-landed on it during an ill-fated three-hour tour back in 1964. After a moderately successful three-year run on CBS, the show was cancelled, leaving the castaways doomed to be forever trapped in reruns in syndication, TV Land, Me TV and so on.
